5 Sites to Find Which TV Show to Watch Next

Mihir Patkar 30-09-2017

There is nothing like finding a great new TV series that you can binge-watch for hours or days. But you will eventually hit a point where you don’t know what to watch next. Even your friends don’t have any recommendations left. Don’t worry, these sites have your back.


Of course, most of the TV series recommendations today are all about what you can stream. You will probably need to choose between Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu Netflix vs. Hulu vs. Amazon Prime: Which Should You Choose? It has been years since we've compared heavy-hitting streaming services, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. And with changes in pricing, content, quality, and interface, we thought it was time to revisit the topic. Read More . And personally, I would recommend you buy an HBO Go subscription too.

1. Vulture’s Streaming Guide: For Beginners, Based on Service

Entertainment site Vulture has a special section dedicated to streaming. And more than a fair bit of that is dedicated to TV series. It covers only Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Go, and Showtime, but between that, you’ll get some excellent recommendations.

Scroll down to the section for “The Best TV Shows On…” to see what you can stream on each service. The “See All Current Favorites” takes you to an article with a long list of recommendations, each with a small description.

This is the perfect beginner’s guide to find the most popular and critically acclaimed shows on whatever you subscribed to. The shows talked about here are obvious if you’re a TV junkie. But if you’re new to binge-watching, you’ll find some gems in this.


While Vulture is a great place to get started, you might want to quickly move to a new blog once you’re caught up on the classics. For that, check out Decider, one of the best ways to find new movies and shows on Netflix 5 Ways to Find Good Movies or TV Shows to Watch Next on Netflix Netflix knows exactly what you want to watch, but its recommendations section isn't always helpful.

3. ReelGood: Recommendations Only From What You Subscribe To

There is nothing more frustrating than finding a new show you’d love to watch, only to find it’s not available on the service you subscribe to. Reelgood first asks you to choose the services you have subscribed to, like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and others. Once you do that, only then does ReelGood start recommending shows.

You can browse through popular TV series on the sources you have selected, or new TV series added to them. Each series displays its IMDb rating when you hover over it. Click it to find a trailer or sometimes even the first episode if it’s available on a free source. ReelGood also hooks into Trak.TV to record what you have seen and liked across different platforms.


ReelGood also lets you browse by genre, and has a few fun lists like IMDb’s top-rated shows or the best geek TV series Geek TV: 18 of the Best Television Shows for Geeks There have been countless geeky television shows produced over the years, but which are the absolute best every self-respecting geek should have watched by now?

4. CableTV’s What To Watch: Smart Algorithm Finds What You’ll Like

If streaming is not your style, you can still go back to good old cable television to watch your shows. CableTV’s What To Watch recommendation engine is made to find shows still on air.

Key in three or more shows that you have watched and liked, and the algorithm gets to work. One after another, it will tell you things you might like. Each recommendation has a short description, its IMDb rating, how many seasons long it is, and a trailer. Click the “Find This Channel” button to find out when it airs.


The good news is that you can still use this recommendation engine as a way to find shows to stream. All of the shows listed in here are available somewhere. I’d suggest searching for them on JustWatch, one of the best places to check where to stream stuff How to Check Which Movies Are Available to Stream Want to know if your favorite movies or TV shows are available to stream?

5. /r/IfYouLikeBlank: Real People Recommendations

Let’s face it, artificial intelligence isn’t as intelligent as you’d like it to be. While you’ll discover some new shows through these above services, nothing beats asking a human who will tell you about an obscure series. That’s why you should try out Reddit’s IfYouLikeBlank community.

As the name suggests, this entire subreddit was created to give recommendations based on what you like. It’s among the kinder Reddit communities The Kindest Communities on Reddit There are a lot of really great people on Reddit – here's where you can find them. Read More out there, but be a good person and search for your question first. Chances are, someone else has already asked it. If not, feel free to ask for recommendations, and add the [TV] tag so people know what you are looking for.

The good part about this is that you can be specific about what you are looking for. For example, just saying “I’m looking for a show like Game of Thrones” might not be enough. But saying that you want a similar show with politics and gore might get you the right show to watch after GoT.

Don’t Limit Yourself to Series

These sites should be able to recommend exactly what you should watch next based on your likes and dislikes. But don’t make the mistake of sticking to TV series alone. If binge-watching is what you’re looking for, you’ll find things to watch online for free rather than on Netflix or other services.
